I did look on the webpage again and I saw that there are icons beside it that indicate what's in the cache!
For Android Phones you can download "C:Geo" as that is a free app and comparable , if not better than the official $10 app. Iphone people are out of luck

A buddy of mine got me into Geocaching earlier this year when he came to visit from Arizona. I was AMAZED at how many caches are around me. There is even one hidden in some off road trails about 2 minutes from my house that I never knew existed. Great excuse to take my new jeep on the trails,lol.

Anyway's , I really like geocaching and as a newbie to geocaching I found it pretty cool the way some are hidden , for example I was looking for one in a parking lot and my phone kept bringing me to some tree's and a lightpost in a parking lot. The geocache was actually a magnetic square cover that looked like it was screwed into the lightpost to access the inside wiring,lol. It took me about 20 minutes to figure it out because I kept looking in the tree's.
It seems wherever I go if I open the app there is something hidden somewhere close to wherever I may be,very cool. I did finally hide one myself this year while kayaking and I placed it under a bridge. Only way to get that one is to be in a kayak or canoe,lol. Someone found it and logged it the very next day. My username is Drown021 on geocaching.com also.

If you haven't tried it , I recommend it.

geocaching.com is the best world-wide site I think, but I wouldn't doubt if there are more localized sites for different regions since the hobby has grown so much.

Great hobby. Recently started with kids. We go by TeamDoo out of Toronto area. We have found caches in Cuba and Mexico as well as have TB's in Europe now. Labeled my Jeep GeoJeep and placed a TB sticker on it!

Sadly traded the Wrangler for a Compass so not trails for us.
